biggest drivers are medicare, medicaid and social security of our debt. [ buzzer ] >> computer says no. >> stephanie: does david gregory correct the statement or challenge credibility? no! once more, this ridiculous fib goes unchallenged. the truth is our national debt began to skyrocket under george bush with medicare part d fiasco. year under year under george w. bush, deficit came in at $500 billion. it is finally year of 2007-2008 president obama inherited the mess of trillion dollar annual deficits but none of this has been caused by medicare or medicaid. >> obviously entitlements. those lazy 47 percenters. >> stephanie: maria and david gregory should know better. >> yeah, they do. they're both major news anchors of major news networks. >> they're paying them lots of money to say lies. >> stephanie: the real culprits are the lack of revenue caused by the tax cuts. oh, he sent a helpful pie chart as well. >> we love pie charts. >> we love pie. >> stephanie: i love pie charts and graphs. the military s

don't slash medicare we're going to end up like greece. well, that's just stupid. >> stephanie: yeah. but you know this is what i have been talking about all morning. and i couldn't stop playing that clip for you from david gregory. sunday after the election should the president bring in mitt romney to negotiate the fiscal cliff. maybe the fact that grover norquist has a seat at the table, as if he won this election. >> i can see putting him in there, but the party is at least pretending to run away from him right now. >> stephanie: right. >> for all of the people who are running away from him, i think we should notice we are essentially arguing to bring the top marginal rate back up into the lower 30s. >> stephanie: exactly. i love the way you state. you say i have said it more than once it's not the president's job to tame john boner's tax reform um. he has no obligation to water these down just to get a deal down just for the sake of appearances. i mean that's exactly it. the president has more leverage than he obviously had last summer. >> and -- and -- if boehn

that on every issue you needed a supermajority. in 1965, medicare passed. most people like medicare. had 55 votes. if it came before the senate before, it would fail. >> eliot: i gotta -- >> one very quick thing the healthcare legislation was watered down time and again by the use of the filibuster and they kept making it weaker and weaker and weaker because they needed 60 votes to even consider it. >> eliot: not that it matters but if i were a judge, i would say the fact of the constitution specifies where you do need a supermajority implicitly says you don't therefore fill buster is not constitutional. i did not know that about aaron burr. he both gave us the filibuster and dueling as a way to resolve disputes. the guy has extensive process clearly not what ours is. bob edgar ceo of common cause. michael waldman president of brennan center for justice. thank you for joining us tonight. another teenager senselessly gunned down in florida raising questions again about the scope of the >> eliot: a detailed report on corru
